The United Steel Workers of Montreal Announce "No Brakes No Brains" Canadian Tour

BY Birkir FjalarPublished Feb 4, 2011

The United Steel Workers of Montreal love nothing more than to share an lively evening with their audience. So much so, in fact, that the band will set out on another coast-to-coast tour in support of their third record, 2009's Three on the Tree.

Dubbed "No Brakes No Brains," the tour includes stops in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, plus a handful of Canadian cities in between. In fact, the Quebec six-piece will be dividing their 18 dates between large urban centres and smaller, more rural locales such Coleman, AB and Revelstoke, BC.

In a press release, the United Steel Workers of Montreal frontman Gern says, "We've done quite a bit of road work stretching back more than five years and have always been drawn to the small towns. We really take the small towns to heart. But then the big towns and cities really grab our citified side. So long as everyone is dancing, we're pretty happy wherever we're playing."
